Danish aid organisation Tvind has received grants totalling almost 500 million kroner from the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) since 2004.

But the USDA is now taking a closer look at the organisation and the grants it has received. Tvind’s founder Mogens Amdi Pedersen is wanted by Interpol and the Danish police for serious tax fraud and embezzlement.
Although Amdi Pedersen and five other Tvind leaders were acquitted of fraud charges in the lower Danish courts in 2006, the verdicts were appealed.

One of the areas the USDA will investigate is the funding given to Tvind-controlled Planet Aid, a charity that collects used clothing. US authorities believe that Planet Aid is so closely interwoven with Tvind’s commercial operations that profits from the charity’s work ends up in tax havens ultimately controlled by Tvind’s leadership.

On condition of anonymity, a former manager at Tvind told Jyllands-Posten newspaper that large amounts of money flowing from Planet Aid and other charitable companies affiliated with the organisation are structured to ensure Tvind leaders’ financial well-being.
